The left side is the "charger" plug, and on the right you can see the battery pack. You will need a short connection cable, maybe with small alligator clips, to connect one of the charger contacts with one of the prongs on the battery pack.

Also be sure to connect the leads to the meter correctly. Usually there is one common GND socket and then one for voltage readings an another one (!) for currents.
If still in doubt you may post a picture of your meter.


Hi Dieter,

I will try that and post the results.
Thank you.

PS: I was using the correct DVM output for current. But I was using it like I do with the voltage readings, in parallel.
As to why I got 2mA, I have no clue.
